Emma Watson and Chord Overstreet Relationship Timeline: Everything We Know
Less than a month after it was reported that Emma Watson and Glee star Chord Overstreet had broken up, the two were recently photographed kissing in Los Angeles. So are Overstreet and Watson back together, or did they never break up in the first place? And how long have they been dating? Let’s take a look at everything we know about the relationship between Emma Watson and Chord Overstreet, including when, exactly, it began.
Watson previously dated William “Mack” Knight, but they split up in November 2017 after being together for about two years, US Weekly reported at the time. Meanwhile, Overstreet had been linked to actress Brooke Butler.
Earlier this year, rumors began to swirl that Watson and Overstreet were an item. They were first seen together at a concert in February and then at the Vanity Fair Oscars party in March. Page Six reported in March that they were indeed dating, although Watson was trying to keep it quiet. However, another source told Page Six that their relationship was still in its very early stages and that they were friendly but not officially dating.
Not long after that Page Six report, though, the two were photographed walking hand-in-hand. After that photo emerged, People spoke with a source who said, “They have been dating for a little bit now, but it’s still pretty new.” The source also explained that they met through friends and that they’re actually a pretty good match because they have very similar personalities.
At the end of May, there were reports that the relationship had already come to an end, though. People reported that the two had split up, with a source saying that it was never going to be a long-term thing. The Sun also backed this up, quoting a source as saying, “things just haven’t worked out between them and they are both now single again.”
The Sun’s report from late May also claimed that the two had been dating for six months, which would mean they started seeing each other in November of last year. Indeed, the outlet claimed they met shortly after Watson’s split from William “Mack” Knight. The Sun also reported at this point that Watson had unfollowed Overstreet on Instagram.
Now, less than a month later, Watson and Overstreet were recently photographed kissing in Los Angeles; they can also be seen taking pictures of themselves kissing, and they were later spotted going to a movie theater, a restaurant, and a supermarket. So either the reports of Watson and Overstreet breaking up were not true, or they got back together quickly after their May split.
We don’t really know which is the case, as Watson is notoriously private about her personal relationships and has never actually confirmed that she and Overstreet were ever dating. Watson has said that she feels it would be hypocritical to talk about her boyfriends in interviews while complaining about paparazzi photos.
She said in 2017:
“I want to be consistent: I can’t talk about my boyfriend in an interview and then expect people not to take paparazzi pictures of me walking around outside my home. You can’t have it both ways. I’ve noticed, in Hollywood, who you’re dating gets tied up into your film promotion and becomes part of the performance and the circus. I would hate anyone that I were with to feel like they were in any way part of a show or an act.”
